Gutzon Borglum Highway
Re-dedication Ceremony for the Gutzon Borglum Memorial Highway, Saturday, June 1, 2013 at 10 am
The re-dedication ceremony took place at the turn-out in full view of Borglum's Mount Rushmore sculpture.
The Department of Transportation designated a 10-mile segment of Hwy 244 (between the U.S. 16A junction near Keystone and the intersection with U.S. 385 south of Hill City) as the Gutzon Borglum Highway on June 1, 1973. The Mount Rushmore Society partnered with the DOT and National Park Service in re-dedicating the highway on its 40th anniversary, by erecting the original Gutzon Borglum Memorial Highway sign that was taken down during construction decades ago.
Following the re-dedication everyone was invited to the Carver's Cafe for refreshments provided by Xanterra Parks & Resorts.
